In issuing the first number of the New England Official Directory 
and General Hand-Book, I desire to make a few explanatory remarks. 
The objects of the book are : — 

I. To give, in as compact a form as possible, a complete directory, 
corrected at least once a year, of all the official and professional men of 
New England. By official men, I mean all who hold an office, by election 
or appointment, within the gift of the town, city, county, State, or 
United States. By professional men, I mean doctors, lawyers, clergymen, 
instructors, teachers, &c. 

II. To give short, accurate biographical sketches of all official and 
professional men in New England. 

I do not profess to have succeeded perfectly in either department of 
this twofold undertaking in this first edition. On the contrary, there is 
no expectation on my part of perfecting or completing the biographical 
side of the work short of two or three years. But efforts will be 
continued, and additional biographies inserted in each issue, until the 
list embraces sketches of all the official and professional men of New 
England. These will be re-published, with corrections and additions each 
year, and will be dropped only on the death of the parties represented. 
The extension of this list will considerably enlarge the work, but the 
price will remain permanently at four dollars and fifty cents. A smaller 
type may be used in the sketches hereafter. 

In preparing the biographical sketches in this book, the managing 
editor has received valuable assistance from William E. Graves, Esq., 
a well-known Boston journalist, of large experience and extensive 
acquaintance throughout the New England States. 

The general directory side of the work will also be enlarged, improved, 
and made more perfect from year to year. Several classes of officers 
have been omitted in this issue, as elections were taking place about the 
time it went to press, but these will be included in the next edition, 
However, upon the whole, it will be found as correct as it was possible 
to make it under the circumstances. 

Before consulting the directory for any name, it will be absolutely 
necessary to refer to the Index, excepting only biographical sketches, 
which have been arranged alphabetically. All names have been arranged 
either alphabetically or by towns, as the case seemed to require. 



6 PREFACE. 



The matter has been crowded in very closely, and may seem a little 
complex for a reference work on this account, but the reader's patience 
will bridge over this infelicity when it is remembered that all this is 
done to make the work as cheap as possible. 

It should be borne in mind that no advertisements disfigure this work, 
— a departure that ought to meet with enthusiastic approval. If the 
usual amount of space were devoted to advertisements, the price of the 
book might be made one-half less, but, unless I greatly mistake, 
subscribers will prefer the book without advertisements. 

The work will be issued with a new set of plates annually, as early in 
May as possible, and corrected editions will be issued quarterly.

A DECLARATION 

BY THE REPRESENTATIVES OF THE 
UNITED STATES OP AMERICA, IN 
CONGRESS ASSEMBLED. 

When in the course of human 
events it becomes necessary for one 



26 



OFFICIAL DIRECTORY AND 



[VOL. I. 



people to dissolve the political 
bands which have connected them 
with another, and to assume among 
the powers of the earth the sepa- 
rate and equal station to which the 
laws of nature and of nature's God 
entitle them, a decent respect to 
the opinions of mankind requires 
that they should declare the causes 
which impel them to the separa- 
tion. 

We hold these truths to he self- 
evident: that all men are created 
equal ; that they are endowed by 
their Creator with certain inalien- 
able rights ; that among these are 
life, liberty, and the pursuit of 
happiness. That, to secure these 
rights, governments are instituted 
among men, deriving their just 
powers from the consent of the 
governed ; that whenever any form 
of government becomes destructive 
of these ends, it is the right of the 
people to alter or to abolish it, and 
to institute a new government, lay- 
ing its foundation on such principles, 
and organizing its powers in such 
form, as to them shall seem most 
likely to effect their safety and 
happiness. Prudence, indeed, will 
dictate, that governments long es- 
tablished should not be changed 
for light and transient causes ; and, 
accordingly, all experience hath 
shown that mankind are more dis- 
posed to suffer, while evils are suf- 
ferable, than to right them by abol- 
ishing the forms to which they have 
been accustomed. But when a long 
train of abuses and usurpations, 
pursuing invariably the same ob- 
ject, evinces a design to reduce 
them under absolute despotism, it 
is their right, it is their duty to 
throw off such government, and to 
provide new guards for their future 
security. Such has been the pa- 
tient sufferance of these colonies, 
and such is now the necessity which 
constrains them to alter their former 
systems of government. The his- 
tory of the x>resent King of Great 
Britain is a history of repeated 
injuries and usurpations, all hav- 
ing, in direct object, the establish- 



ment of an absolute tyranny over 
these States. To prove this, let 
facts be submitted to a candid 
world. 

He has refused his assent to laws 
the most wholesome and necessary 
for the public good. 

He has forbidden his Governors 
to pass laws of immediate and 
pressing importance, unless sus- 
pended in their operation until his 
assent should be obtained; and 
when so suspended, he has utterly 
neglected to attend to them. 

He has refused to pass other laws 
for the accommodation of large dis- 
tricts of people, unless those people 
would relinquish the right of rep- 
resentation in the legislature, — a 
right inestimable to them, and for- 
midable to tyrants only. 

He has called together legislative 
bodies at places unusual, uncomfort- 
able, and distant from the deposi- 
tory of their public records, for 
the sole purpose of fatiguing them 
into a compliance with his meas- 
ures. 

He has dissolved representative 
houses repeatedly, for opposing, 
with manly firmness, his invasions 
on the rights of the peojde. 

He has refused, for a long time 
after such dissolutions, to cause 
others to be elected ; whereby the 
legislative powers, incapable of an- 
nihilation, have returned to the 
people at large for their exercise, 
the State remaining, in the mean- 
time, exposed to all the danger of 
invasion from without and convul- 
sions within. 

He has endeavored to prevent the 
population of these States ; for that 
purpose, obstructing the laws for 
naturalization of foreigners ; refus- 
ing to pass others to encourage 
their migrations hither, and raising 
the conditions of new appropria- 
tions of land. 

He has obstructed the adminis- 
tration of justice, by refusing his 
assent to laws for establishing ju- 
diciary powers. 

He has made judges dependent 
on his will alone for the tenure of 



1878-9.] 



GENERAL HAND-BOOK. 



27 



their offices and the amount and 
payment of their salaries. 

He has erected a multitude of 
new offices, and sent hither swarms 
of officers to harass our people, and 
eat out their suhstance. 

He has kept among us, in times 
of peace, standing armies, without 
the consent of our legislature. 

He has affected to render the 
military independent of, and supe- 
rior to, the civil power. 

He has combined, with others, to 
subject us to a jurisdiction foreign 
to our constitution and unacknowl- 
edged by our laws ; giving his as- 
sent to their acts of pretended legis- 
lation : 

For quartering large bodies of 
armed troops among us : 

For protecting them, by a mock 
trial, from punishment, for any 
murders which they should commit 
on the inhabitants of these States : 

For cutting off our trade with all 
parts of the world : 

For imposing taxes on us without 
our consent : 

For depriving us, in many cases, 
of the benefits of trial by jury : 

For transporting us beyond seas 
to be tried for pretended offences : 

For abolishing the free system of 
English laws in a neighboring prov- 
ince, establishing therein an arbi- 
trary government, and enlarging its 
boundaries, so as to render it at 
once an example and fit instrument 
for introducing the same absolute 
rule into these colonies : 

For taking away our charters, 
abolishing our most valuable laws, 
and altering, fundamentally, the 
powers of our governments : 

For suspending our own legisla- 
tures, and declaring themselves in- 
vested with power to legislate for 
us in all cases whatsoever : 

He has abdicated government 
here, by declaring us out of his pro- 
tection, and waging war against 
us. 

He has plundered our seas, rav- 
aged our coasts, burnt our towns, 
and destroyed the lives of our peo- 
ple. 



He is, at this time, transporting 
large armies of foreign mercenaries 
to complete the works of death, 
desolation, and tyranny, already 
begun with circumstances of cruel- 
ty and perfidy scarcely paralleled 
in the most barbarous ages, and 
totally unworthy the head of a 
civilized nation. 

He has constrained our fellow- 
citizens, taken captive on the high 
seas, to bear arms against their 
country, to become the execution- 
ers of their friends and brethren, or 
to fall themselves by their hands. 

He has excited domestic insurrec- 
tions among us, and has endeavored 
to bring on the inhabitants of our 
frontiers, the merciless Indian sav- 
ages, whose known rule of warfare 
is an undistinguished destruction, 
of all ages, sexes, and conditions. 

In every stage of these oppres- 
sions, we have petitioned for re- 
dress, in the most humble terms ; 
our repeated petitions have been 
answered only by repeated injury. 
A prince whose character is thus 
marked by every act which may 
define a tyrant, is unfit to be the 
ruler of a free people. 

Nor have we been wanting in 
attention to our British brethren. 
We have warned them from time 
to time, of attempts made by their 
legislature to extend an unwarrant- 
able jurisdiction over us. We have 
reminded them of the circumstances 
of our emigration and settlement 
here. We have appealed to their na- 
tive justice and magnanimity, and 
we have conjured them, by the ties 
of our common kindred, to disavow 
these usurpations, which would in- 
evitably interrupt our connections 
and correspondence. They, too, 
have been deaf to the voice of jus- 
tice and consanguinity. We must, 
therefore, acquiesce in the neces- 
sity, which demands our separa- 
tion, and hold them, as we hold the 
rest of mankind, enemies in war — 
in peace friends. 

We, therefore, the representa- 
tives of the United States of Amer- 
ica, in General Congress assembled, 



28

appealing to the Supreme Judge of 
the World for the rectitude of our 
intentions, do, in the name, and by 
the authority of the good people of 
these Colonies, solemnly publish 
and declare, That these United 
Colonies are, and of right ought to 
be, free and independent States ; that 
they are absolved from all allegi- 
ance to the British crown, and that 
all political connection between 
them and the State of Great Brit- 
ain is, and ought to be, totally 
dissolved; and that as free and 
independent States, they have full

peace, contract alliances, establish 
commerce, and to do all other acts 
and things which independent 
States may of right do. And for 
the support of this Declaration, 
with a firm reliance on the protec- 
tion of Divine Providence, we mu-

Representatives and direct taxes 
shall be apportioned among the 
several States which may be in- 
cluded within this Union, accord- 
ing to their respective numbers, 
which shall be determined by add- 
ing to the whole number of free 
persons, including those bound to 
service for a term of years, and ex- 
cluding Indians not taxed, three- 
fifths of all other persons. The

first election, they shall be divided 
as equally as may be into three 
classes. The seats of the Senators 
of the first class shall be vacated 
at the expiration of the second 
year; of the second class, at the 



expiration of the fourth year ; and 
of the third class, at the expiration 
of the sixth year ; so that one-third

and if vacancies happen by resig-

ment shall not extend further than 
to removal from office, and disqual- 
ification to hold and enjoy any of- 
fice of honor, trust, or profit under 
the United States ; but the party 
convicted shall nevertheless be lia- 
ble and subject to indictment, trial, 
judgment, and punishment accord- 
ing to law. 

SECTION IV. 

The times, places, and manner of 
holding elections for Senators and 
Representatives shall be prescribed

regulations, except as to the places 
of choosing Senators. 

The Congress shall assemble at 
least once in every year, and such 
meeting shall he on the first Mon- 
day in December, unless they shall 
by law appoint a different day. 

SECTION V. 

Each house shall be the judge of 
the elections, returns, and -qualifi- 
cations of its own members, and a 
majority of each shall constitute a 
quorum to do business ; but a small- 
er number may adjourn from day 
to day, and may be authorized to 
compel the attendance of absent 
members, in such manner, and under 
such penalties, as each house may 
provide. 

Each house may determine the 
rules of its proceedings, punish its 
members for disorderly behavior, 
and, with the concurrence of two- 
thirds, expel the member. 

Each house shall keep a journal 
of its proceedings, and from time 
to time publish the same, excepting 
such parts as may in their judgment 
require secrecy; and the yeas and 
nays of the members of either house 
on any question shall, at the desire 
of one-fifth of those present, be en- 
tered on the journal. 

Neither house, during the session 
of Congress, shall, without the con-

than three days, nor to any other 
place than that in which the two 
houses shall be sitting. 

SECTION VI. 

The Senators and Representatives 
shall receive a compensation for 
their services, to be ascertained by

of the United States. They shall 
in all cases, except treason, felony, 
and breach of the peace, be privi- 
leged from arrest during their at- 
tendance at the session of their 
respective houses, and in going to 
and returning from the same ; and 
for any speech or debate in either 
house, they shall not be questioned 
in any other place. 



No Seuator or Representative 
shall, during the time for which he 
was elected, be appointed to any 
civil office under the authority of 
the United States, which shall have 
been created, or the emoluments 
whereof shall have been increased 
during such time; and no person 
holding any office under the United 
States shall be a member of either 
house during his continuance in 
office. 

SECTION VII. 

All bills for raising revenue shall 
originate in the House of Repre- 
sentatives ; but the Senate may pro- 
pose or concur with amendments as 
on other bills. 

Every bill which shall have passed 
the House of Representatives and 
the Senate, shall, before it become 
a law, be presented to the President 
of the United States ; if he approve, 
he shall sign it ; but if not, he shall 
return it, with his objections, to 
that house in which it shall have 
originated, who shall enter the ob- 
jections at large on their journal, 
and proceed to reconsider it. If, 
after such reconsideration, two- 
thirds of that house shall agree to 
pass the bill, it shall be sent, 
together with the objections, to the 
other house, by which it shall like- 
wise be reconsidered, and if ap- 
proved by two-thirds of that house, 
it shall become a law. But in all 
such cases the votes of both houses 
shall be determined by yeas and 
nays, and the names of the persons 
voting for and against the bill shall 
be entered on the journal of each 
house respectively. If any bill shall 
not be returned by the President 
within ten days (Sundays excepted) 
after it shall have been presented 
to him, the same shall be a law, in 
like manner as if he had signed it, 
unless the Congress, by their ad- 
journment, prevent its return, in 
which case it shall not be a law. 

Every order, resolution, or vote 
to which the concurrence of the 
Senate and House of Representa- 
tives may be necessary (except on 
a question of adjournment) shall

partments. 

The President shall have power

[YOL. I. 



December 3, 1789, also made a ces- 
sion of land on the west bank of 
that river for the same purpose. 

These cessions were accepted by- 
Congress, and on the 16th of July, 
1790, an act was passed establishing 
the temporary and permanent seat 
of tbe government of the United 
States. 

Upon the lands thus ceded by the 
States of Maryland and Virginia, 
and accepted by Congress, a district 
of ten miles square was located; 
the lines and boundaries of which 
having been established by a proc- 
lamation of George Washington, 
President of the United States, is- 
sued on the 30th of March, 1791, 
Congress, by " An Act concerning 
the District of Columbia," approved 
February 17, 1801, assumed com- 
plete jurisdiction over the said Dis- 
trict. 

On the 3d of February, 1846, the 
legislature of Virginia passed an 
act accepting, by the State of Vir- 
ginia, the county of Alexandria, in 
the District of Columbia, when the 
same shall bo receded by the Con- 
gress of the United States ; and on 
the 9th of July, 1846, an act of 
Congress passed to retrocede the 
county of Alexandria, in the Dis- 
trict of Columbia, to the State of 
Virginia. 



So that the portion of the District 
located upon the land ceded by Vir- 
ginia, having been retroceded to 
that State, the (Hstrict of Columbia 
has been, since the act of retroces- 
sion, embraced within the county 
of Washington, which includes the 
cities of Washington and George- 
town. 

The municipal government of the 
District, since the retrocession of 
the county of Alexandria to the 
State of Virginia, has rested upon 
charters granted from time to time 
by Congress to the cities of Wash- 
ington and Georgetown ; these con- 
tinued in force until the first day of 
June, 1871, when they were repealed 
by an act to provide a government 
for the District of Columbia, ap- 
proved February 21, 1871. This act 
establishes for the District of Co- 
lumbia a territorial form of govern- 
ment, consisting of a governor and 
certain other officers appointed by 
the President, with the advice and 
consent of the Senate, and a dele- 
gate in Congress, and other munici- 
pal officers elected bv the people. 

The population in 1870, 131,700. 
Area, about 60 square miles. 

In 1876 the territorial form of 
government was abolished, and the 
temporary government of the Dis- 
trict provided for by commissioners.

52 



OFFICIAL DIRECTORY AND 



[VOL. I. 



return of a receipt for it. Manu- 
scripts, except for books, are 
charged letter rates. 

All letters remaining uncalled, 
for thirty days in a post-office, 
after being advertised, are sent to 
the Dead Letter Office, with the 
following exceptions : 1. Letters 
bearing a request to return to the 
writer if not called for within a 
specified time, and letters bearing

ber is given. 

Postal-Cards. — There must be 
nothing whatever attached to a 
postal-card, except that the address 
may be pasted on, nor anything 
written or printed on the face ex- 
cept the address. Anything the 
sender desires may be written or 
printed on the back, provided it is 
not scurrilous or indecent. Postal- 
cards are not returned to the send- 
ers, nor advertised, nor sent to the 
Dead Letter Office. If not called 
for in sixty days, they are burned. 
Any printed card may be sent

No postal packet may exceed four

ecutive Departments of the govern- 
ment. All printed matter and mer- 
chandise must be fully prepaid. 
All except letter packets must be 
so wrapped that their contents can

writing, and an author may add to 
a proof-sheet new matter, if for the 
purpose of completing the article. 
A circular may contain a written 
address inside, but nothing else. A 
simple mark may he made to call 
attention to an article in printed 
matter. Any packet may have the 
name and address of the sender, 
with the word " From " prefixed on 
the wrapper, and the number and 
names of the articles may be at- 
tached. 

Liquids, poisons, explosives, etc., 
— anything liable to injure the 
mail-bags, their contents, or em- 
ploye's of the department, — if dis- 
covered, will be thrown away. 

Stamps cut from stamped envel- 
opes or newspaper wrappers are not 
good, but if the whole envelope is 
presented, and the postmaster satis- 
fied that it has not been used, it 
will be redeemed in stamps. 

Printed matter, merchandise, and 
other third-class matter will not be 
forwarded from the office where it 
is addressed, unless the postage is 
paid anew, and a request to return 
such packages written thereon sub- 
jects the matter to letter postage. 

To enclose any written matter in 
printed matter subjects the person 
mailing the same to a fine of five 
dollars unless the person receiving 
the package pays letter postage on 
the same. If articles upon which 
different rates of postage are charg- 
ed are enclosed in the same package, 
postage must be paid at the highest 
rate. 

Post-Office Money Order Fees, are 
as follows : For orders not exceed- 
ing fifteen dollars, ten cents ; from 
fifteen to thirty dollars, fifteen 
cents ; from thirty to forty, twenty 
cents ; from forty to fifty, twenty- 
five cents. Money orders are con- 
sidered perfectly safe, and are 
sometimes more convenient than 
bank drafts, as the holder is not 
usually required to be identified. 
He must be able to say from whom 
and from where the order comes. 
The payee of an order may request 
payment to be made to another 



person, but only one such indorse- 
ment is allowed. If a money order 
is lost, a certificate must be obtain- 
ed from both the issuing and pay- 
ing postmaster that it has not been 
and will not be paid, when the 
Department at Washington will 
issue another on application. Money 
sent through the mail, even though 
the letter be registered, is at the 
risk of the sender, except where 
there is a special agreement to the 
contrary. 

The mailing of any letter or circu- 
lar concerning lotteries, gift-con- 
certs, or similar enterprises offering 
prizes ; and the mailing, or receiv- 
ing through the mail, of any inde- 
cent publication, or any article de- 
signed, for immoral use, or any no- 
tice giving information as to the 
procuring of such articles, are pun- 
ishable by either fine or imprison- 
ment, or by both. 

FOKEIGN. 

To Mexico, direct by sea, letters 
ten cents, papers one cent for each 
two ounces or fraction, and one 
cent additional for each paper ; land 
route, United States rates. To Bra- 
zil, British mail via Brindisi, letters 
ten cents, papers four cents. 

To all European countries, Alge- 
ria, the Azores, Balearic Islands, 
Bermuda, Canary Islands, Costa 
Rica (direct mail via Aspinwall), 
Egypt, Faroe Islands, Fiji Islands, 
(direct via San Francisco), Gibral- 
tar (British mail via England), Heli- 
goland, Honduras Bay Islands (di- 
rect via New Orleans), Madeira Is- 
lands, Malta, and dependencies, 
Spanish settlements in Morocco, 
Newfoundland, New Grenada (di- 
rect mail), Panama (direct mail), 
San Domingo (direct steamer), Tan- 
giers, Tripoli, Tunis, West Indies 
(direct mail), letters five cents, pa- 
pers two cents. 

To most Asiatic countries there 
are three routes ; viz., San Francisco, 
via Southampton, and via Brindisi, 
and the rates for each are given be- 
low in the above order. Where but 
one rate is given, the prices are the 



54 



OFFICIAL DIRECTORY AND 



[VOL. I. 



same, or there is but one route. To 
Australia (except New South Wales 
and Queensland, to which by same 
mail the rates are, letters twelve 
cents, papers two cents), letters 
five, fifteen, and nineteen cents, pa- 
pers two, four, and six cents ; Hong 
Kong, Canton, Swatow, Amoy, and 
Foochow, letters ten cents, papers 
four cents ; other parts of China, 
letters five, fifteen, and nineteen 
cents, papers two, four, and six 
cents; Japan, letters five, twenty- 
seven, and thirty-one cents, papers 
two, four, and six cents ; India, let- 
ters ten cents, papers four cents ; 
Siam, letters ten, twenty-seven, and 
thirty-one cents, papers two, six, 
and eight cents ; Sandwich Islands, 
letters six cents, papers one cent for 
each two ounces. 

The maximum weight of a foreign 
postal packet is, for patterns of mer- 
chandise, eight and three -fourths 
ounces ; for other articles, except 
letters, two pounds and three ounces. 
Foreign postal packets must con- 
tain no article subject to customs 
duties, and no gold or silver coin. 

Prepay all postage, not only be- 
cause in some cases the package will 
not be forwarded unless prepaid, 
but because it is a shabby thing to 
require a correspondent to pay your 
postage. Write the address very 
plainly and fully. Be sure you give 
the name of the post-office, and un- 



less the place is a large city, give 
the county. In writing a letter, al- 
ways begin as you wish the an- 
swer directed, and sign your full 
name. If people only knew how 
much trouble and loss would be 
saved by following these directions, 
they *would do it, we feel sure. Re- 
member there are many post-offices 
of the same name, therefore always 
give the State. Put the stamp on 
the right-hand upper corner, and be 
sure that it adheres firmly. 

The fees for money orders on 
Great Britain and Ireland and Swit- 
zerland are as follows: Not over 
ten dollars, twenty-five cents ; from 
ten to twenty dollars, fifty cents; 
from twenty to thirty dollars, sev- 
enty-five cents ; from thirty to forty 
dollars, one dollar; from forty to 
fifty dollars, one dollar and twenty- 
five cents. On Germany, not over 
five dollars, fifteen cents ; all others 
as above. 

Note. — These are the rates for 
letter packets not exceeding one- 
half ounce, and in most cases for 
each newspaper not weighing over 
four ounces; the same rate being 
added for each additional four 
ounces where the weight is more, 
and for each paper where it is less. 
Where there are several routes with 
different rates, the one paid for 
should be placed in the left-hand 
upper corner of the packet.
